Also never said anything about motocross pants, or anything about my blank being superb. Though it is a great board for $180, and the other dude in here that owns a blank agrees with me.
For being such a "tough kid" getting stabbed or shot in the hood by your brothers gang or whatever, you sure are soft.

Being a participant in both sports i can say that dye doesn't have the correct fashion emphasis to engage snowboarding in an aggressive manner that will get them top dollar for their product(which they will charge)

They are to cleat cut of a company to compete with snowboard apparel giants like Grenade, Burton, Ride, ect. They would be better off making skiing gear in my opinion.

indaface are you saying that Dye should just change their fashion to look like everyone else when they get into snow? Being the same as everyone else is never a good idea in a crowded market.

He's saying that they don't have a style that appeals to the snow crowd. Obviously they'll sell stuff but they won't sell as much because that's not the fashion people are looking for.

They might change it up for the snow crowd we never know. Hopefully they do but if they don't oh well.

Are you serious? Better off making skiing gear? Do you really think there aren't giants in skiing. Skiing has been around a lot longer. Plus there its Dye Snow. If they are making goggle there is no such thing as a snowboard only goggle or a ski only goggle. Fashion emphasis? Not sure what that means, but I don't think they would just take their designs and put them on a coat. I am sure it will be unique but they will bring their quality and things they have learned into it.

Fashion is made by the companies promoting the gear. It's an industry driven by psychological marketing and the power of suggestion and alpha peers, not "what people are looking for". Therefore if Dye play their cards right they can change what the snow crowd are looking for. The only thing stopping them is money - snow apparel is big business and there are a lot of players. It'd take some serious cash to change the whole industry style. Most likely Dye will go for a compromise - their own style tweaked a bit to better fit in with the tastes the rest of the industry have decided on but different enough to stand out.

The point is this: it's stupid to write Dye off as not fitting what people want when they're clearly capable of designing some stuff that will work well for the snow industry. They have very good designers that will be well able to understand this and design stuff to fit. They'll throw in a good dose of their own style to keep things fresh and different and gain some brand recognition in the crowd.

I find it hilarious that so many people are upset at the idea of Dye making snowboarding goggles and apparel. So what if they are looking to expand their brand into other sports. Sounds like good business to me.
And whether you agree with it or not why get upset. They aren't discontinuing their paintball products or forcing you to buy their Dyesnow gear.
I swear some of you must lead such sorry, boring lives that you come on pbn just to complain about nothing

But then what has Ed Hardy every been known for other then putting some skulls and other random images on clothing? Dye is known to make quality protective soft goods. So thats not an even comparison

Dye is known for making what? Im embarrassed to know what dye is actually. Whether they make quality **** is irrelevant, their "reputation" doesnt hold any water to snowboarders.

they dont have a reputation to snowboarders, because snowboarders havnt heard of them yet.

It'll take 3 things to make the successful in snowboarding

Good marketing
A good product
Sponsoring famous snowboarders

If that happens then theyll be successful no doubt.

Believe it or no but there are many people that participate in more then one sport. No one said anything about then coming in and suddenly taking over. They only need to start a small buzz. Get a little following and let it grow from there. And there are more then enough people already who snowboard and play paintball to help get that started.
